Jordan was in his 30's when was the most dominant.

He will be turning 30yrs old next season and I think he has a good shot.

only 12 people make it. they wont have 6 guards. they always have a shooter like a redd. and they always have a defensive guy like a prince this year. also, i think chandler has a better shot at making it than than bynum. finally, i think melo will 100% start. he is the best player for international play.i think this would be the lineup:

paul
kobe
lebron
melo
howard

This is this years lineup, no way it remains the same in 2012.

why wouldnt it be the same? kidd might retire but there is still paul and d-will. all the guys are still young except kobe. kobe will still be productive by 2012

if they win the gold i think 10 out of the 12 players form this year wont want to go to London games they will preffer to satya at home, have a rest, and dont be involved in another championship with the posibility to not win gold and hurt their legacy

If they fail this year at least half the team will come back for 2012 to solve unfinisher bussines.

The 2012 team will be half stacked with players that are in high school and college right now. Players like Brandon Jennings, Tyler Hansbrough, Blake Griffin, B.J. Mullens, and Derrick Favors.

they wont put rookies in the roster. and why wouldnt lebron, wade, melo, bosh, howard, paul, d-will, amare want to be on the team? they will all be young and as for lebron, it helps his marketing value going to london.

The team will need a 3-point threat for sure like how they have Michael Redd. Maybe Kevin Martin.

short 3pt range means you need more guards.

This will probably be Kobe's first and last olympics. Jordan played in 2 I think. One out of college and in '92 when he was 29 or 30. Kobe will get his gold this year to put on his resume and stop competing in international competition.

Williams, Paul, LeBron, Bosh, Melo, Dwight and Wade I believe will play in at least 1 more. If we can keep that core together, plus a few more guys (Durant, Oden, Roy etc)...we could be even more dangerous in '10 and '12.

Kobe may not "be Jordan" but if Jordan was winning chips at 36 Kobe can do that and more at 34. Let's not forget they both share similar skill sets and the ability to rely on jump shots and less on explosiveness later in their careers.

Now DWade isn't someone I count on being too competetive at 34 the way he is with his body.

I think PG will stay the same minus Kidd, add maybe someone fresh outta college that runs like Nash

SG: Kobe, DWade, Iggy (I think he fits better here than SF)

SF: Bron Bron, Rudy Gay

PF: Bosh, Beasly

C: Howard, Stoutamire (?, may be too old or have knee probs), Bynum

Brandon Roy got in the All-Star game because of an iPod. The spot should've went to somebody like Kevin Martin. He wont be in the Olympics.

Stoudamire wont be too old and I don't think we can gurantee a Rookie in the Olympics yet look what happened to Adam Morrison, people wanted him in the games when he was a Rookie and he didn't turn out to be too good.
